What is being delivered for the Olympia Mainnet?

Olympia is the first iteration of the Radix Public Network, commonly referred to as “mainnet”. 

Olympia includes the foundational technologies that act as the basis for all future Radix releases and allows the Radix Community to start taking advantage of the most fundamental Radix features. 

Olympia lays the foundation upon which all future versions of the Radix Public Network will be built. 

Radix has delivered three pieces of software to support the Olympia mainnet.


1 Radix Node: The Radix Node is the key software that runs the Radix Public Network and provides useful API endpoints for things like wallets, depending on its configuration.

Once installed, the Node may be run in one of three modes:

Validator Node

Full Node

Archive Node

You can learn more about the difference between these node modes here.

2 Radix Desktop Wallet - Used for storing, transacting, and staking XRD tokens. It makes it easy for anyone to stake and unstake XRD to Radix validators and receive incentive emissions. It is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux. 

3 Radix Explorer - Provides a list of all nodes that have registered to be validator nodes and are available for staking, along with information about each one to help guide choices of which validators to stake to.
